OJ ap­peal on con­vic­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

OJ Simp­son has taken his lat­est ap­peal over a Las Ve­gas ho­tel room heist con­vic­tion to the full Ne­vada Supreme Court. Lawyer Mal­colm LaVergne is ask­ing the court to con­sider over­turn­ing Simp­son’s con­vic­tion and sen­tence, ar­gu­ing that the jury in the star’s 2008 trial wasn’t fully screened for bias, that blacks were im­prop­erly dis­missed from the jury and that kid­nap­ping charges weren’t proved. Simp­son, 63, is serv­ing nine to 33 years in prison.
